Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council has issued advice to prospective buyers of pet snakes after an eight-foot python was discovered by children playing near Greystones Woodland in Grangetown.

The snake is believed to have been abandoned.

Fortunately, the children did the right thing by allowing the snake space and reported it to their parents.

It was removed by an adult and placed into an empty wheelie bin while waiting for a local rescue.

Advice from the RSPCA website states that though snakes appear to be resilient on the outside, the species need the correct environment including heating and lighting and an appropriate diet to survive. Without proper care they become ill or suffer, and in severe cases, or if left untreated, they can die.

 

Middlesbrough Neighbourhood Policing Team have seized weapons and suspected class B drugs after a warrant was carried out on a property on Maria Street in North Ormesby.

The raid, which was carried out yesterday morning, resulted in a 23-year-old woman and a 36-year-old man being arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class B drugs and abstraction of electricity.

A quantity of suspected cannabis was recovered and a number of weapons were seized.

Anyone with information regarding drugs activity in their local area is asked to call Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

Officers invited a local boy who is "obsessed" with the police to meet them after he raised hundreds of pounds for a local charity.

10-year-old Louie Davies, from Guisborough, gave up sweets and chocolate for two weeks and walked 45 miles to raise £660 for local hospice Zoe's Place, which provides palliative, respite and end of life care to babies and infants.

Louie's charitable efforts were his response to an appeal by Zoe's Place for people to help them with their costs by taking part in the 2.6 challenge, which encourages people to take part in 2.6 mile walks to raise funds.

After Louie's efforts were featured in the local press, where it was mentioned that he hopes to become a policeman, officers decided to meet him and offer him the opportunity to look around a police car and their policing equipment at Guisborough Police Station.
